Riverland Energy partnered with Dairyland Power Cooperative and SoCore Energy to develop local solar energy in 2016. SoCore Energy, a solar developer from Chicago, built, owns, maintains, and operates the array. Riverland Energy and Dairyland Power purchase the energy output.
Riverland Energy is leasing the land to SoCore Energy and will purchase the energy output from an estimated 150 KW of the array. Dairyland Power will purchase the output of approximately 1M of the array.
The solar array is located behind the headquarters building in Arcadia, just east of the pole yard.
